𝗖𝗼𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗮𝘀 𝗢𝗻𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗲 [Online Talks] is one among the six activities of the new BoCA Online program, to be followed at BoCA Bienal digital platforms. This program was built to reflect on the state of the world and the architectures of the sensitive that we now inhabit: the body, the house and the camera, elements that are central references to the history of artistic experimentation. BoCA Online is curated by John Romão.
